Vitabiotics becomes the first vitamin company in history to receive the Queen’s Award for Innovation for the second time

Today, 21st April 2018, Vitabiotics, the UK’s number one vitamin company, is honoured to announce The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation has been awarded
to its Perfectil beauty vitamins range. This is the first and only time that a vitamin company has received the award for innovation on two occasions. It marks the fourth Queen’s Award that Vitabiotics has received, including The Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation for its Pregnacare vitamin research in 2013.

Vitabiotics Perfectil is the UK’s number one nutritional supplement for skin, hair, and nails. It represents multiple innovations in the eld of cosmetic science and nutrition, underpinned by a portfolio of granted and led patents, as well as being the first choice of beauty experts and celebrities including Nicole Scherzinger.

A groundbreaking Perfectil clinical trial1 for the first time that supplementation can help to protect against the ageing effects of harsh winter weather on the skin. The pioneering work led to Vitabiotics’ founder and chairman Dr Kartar Lalvani OBE receiving an honorary professorship from the University of Franche-Comté. This was the first time the award of professorship was given by the University to a British scientist in the field of dermatology.

Commenting on the new Queen’s Award, Vitabiotics President Dr Kartar Lalvani OBE said: “Vitabiotics is immensely honoured to once again receive the Queen’s Award for Innovation, in recognition of our unique and highly successful Perfectil research and innovation. This accolade is a testament to Vitabiotics and I would like to thank all of our dedicated staff, customers, suppliers and research partners for their continued support.”

Vitabiotics’ CEO Tej Lalvani said: “Over the last 45 years, Vitabiotics has consistently been at the cutting edge of nutritional thinking, translating emerging science into effective products, and has established a greater range of new original clinical research, as background support to its formulations, than any other vitamin company. We are all incredibly proud to have once again received this most prestigious award.”
